Just saw this article on the BBC website
I had heard the case of 'Adam' on the news but I am so totally shocked by the numbers involved.
What on earth is happening?

Despite an international search, police were able to find only two of them, Mr O'Reilly said. Most of those questioned said the children had returned to Africa.

While there is nothing to suggest these children have been murdered, a lack of immigration records makes them almost impossible to trace, police say.

So they're apparently not "disappeared" to their families, or whoever they lived with, but bearing in mind cases like Victoria Climbie and the "witch" child this week you have to wonder.
